Bad Parents of the Month

Thank you to Clemmy for alerting us to September's Bad Parents of the Month.* Seems like another parent has his priorities out of whack.

According to a recent news report, a Bend, Oregon man named Lucien Hoffman left his 2-year-old daughter in a car for more than 2 hours in 95-degree heat. The reason? He just had to visit the Mustang Ranch Brothel in Virginia City, Nevada. Luckily, the security guards at the bordello reported the incident, and the girl was treated for dehydration once the authorities arrived. She is currently in the custody of Nevada child welfare officials, while her dad is in the County Detention Facility on child neglect charges and is awaiting bail.

Congratulations, Mr. Hoffman! You are this month's Bad Parent of the Month!

*I know we skipped August, but I can't do this by myself, people! You are my eyes and ears! So email me a story today of someone you've heard about they can be featured in a future post.

People have to get a license to get a pet, but any old schmuck can be a parent. So stupid.
